How to save Streaming Video

Reply Sun 5 Apr, 2009 12:03 pm
Any suggestions on how best to save the "Digital Video Tutor" chapters as found here http://www.math.iupui.edu/MAC/lectures/m110/ I can play them just fine, but because they appear to streaming, I'm not sure what to do.

I did find this site which suggests some methods but I have not tried them yet

Very much obliged!

That article looks to be about flv video (e.g. youtube) at a glance.

The videos you want to download are Real Media streams. If you download their .ram files and open them in a text editor you'll see the links to the streams like this:


I don't have Real Player installed (and ever since FLV haven't needed to) so I can't test it further myself, but you should be able to find software to do what you need by searching for "download .rm stream".

If you use Firefox 2, you can get the "grab it" add-on. I'm not sure if they've made the add-on for Firefox3 yet. It lets you download .flv files (flash video) from any site you see it on. You can convert the videos (requires more software) or you can just use winamp or VLC to watch the videos later.

@Diest TKO,
